Report filters on separate page

Hi,

I'm making different analyses from same data. I've made a separate page for each property .
I believe at this moment that for an end-user its easier to make a choice in a slicer in a page than look next to the page and make the selection. So many of my pages shows a lot of slicers.


At this moment I see that at most pages i've made the same slicers. So it would be very usefull to define those slices as report filters (not as page-filters).

 

Is there a possibility to make a page, add all the report filters as a slicer on that 'selection page' and apply those filters on all the pages?

Thanks in advance for any suggestion!

I do not believe that functionality exists outside of "Report" level filters, which, as you've stated, aren't as user friendly as slicers. It would make a very good Idea though if it is not already out there.

Thanks for your feedback.

There's no report level slicer yet. So far the only approach can be the report level fitler.

 

There's already an idea:Allows Slicers to apply to all Pages of a Report, you can vote it up. Meanwhile we will report this internally and our engineer would evaluate it.

how can this be marked "solved" when the link for the solution points to an idea that's been submitted.... not a real solve?

Indeed, not a real solution, but my question is answered: "At this moment, it is not possible." So I don't have to look or search further.

The only thing I can do is hope that the idea is accepted and become (soon) available in an update of the power bi solution.

Hi eddydm,

 

At this moment,the slicers which you put on a page acts as page level filters.There visibility is restricted to page.Hence report level filters cannot act as slicers of a page

 

thanks and regards,
